If you are a fan of Storage Wars, Pawn Stars, Cajun Pawn Stars, Shipping Wars, and all of that jazz, you are in luck! Amazon Prime Instant Video has just secured a deal with A&E to bring most of A&E’s television properties over. If you have a Kindle Fire HD or other device, you can take a break from reading to hear Dave Hester yell “YUUUP!”
A&E and all of its sister channels already offer most of their video libraries online. Getting into bed with Amazon will greatly expand their footprint for people who tend to watch television on their tablets.
Right now, Prime Instant Videos offers a ton of television shows and movies. Last summer they had close to 22,000 in its vast library, but has since grown to 33,000. You can watch all of these for $79 per year, and you also get one free ebook a month.
